Green Financing Framework announced for Japanese hyperscaler

Asia-Pacific and Japanese (APJ) hyperscale data centre specialist, AirTrunk, have announced the successful close of a landmark green loan in Japan as part of its new Green Financing Framework. The green loan will finance AirTrunk’s recently announced 110+ megawatt (MW) West Tokyo data centre, AirTrunk TOK2, and will be the first green loan for a data centre in Japan.

AirTrunk Chief Financial Officer, Prashant Murthy said: “We continue to drive sustainable innovation throughout the design, build, operations and financing of our data centres. The green loan closed today has set several industry benchmarks including being the first for a data centre in Japan, and first to use eligibility criteria based on operating PUE and water productivity.”
